HELP! My boyfriends son hates me!
My boyfriend and I have been together for two years and moved in together about 8 months ago. I have a 5 year old son of my own and he LOVES my boyfriend! He also has a great relationship with his father and we share him 50/50. My boyfriend has a 4 year old son 6 months younger then my son. The problem is, his son hates me. He is mean to me, tells me he hates me, he screams at me if I ask him to do something. He tells us that his mommy told him he does not have to be nice to me. It hurts, a lot and I wonder if our relationship will survive this. My boyfriend is upset because he spends the time he does have with him punishing him. He has tried spanking, timeout, we even took every single toy out of his room. He just says "I don't care". He told me last night that he wanted his dad to move out so they could go live with his grandma. I started crying, he told me he did not care if I cry that he hated me and did not want to be here.
I am very concerned about my son. He gets so upset when my boyfriends son treats me that way. Am I doing the right thing by letting my son be exposed to this behavior? I just do not know what else to do!
